…the parched land shall become a pool, and the thirsty lands springs of water…(Isaiah 35:7)

Time Marches On

By Rex Goode


I’m feeling my age and more this week. This last year has been a year of medical revelations. I’ve been diagnosed with gout, diabetes, and now, degenerative joint disease. The latter I’m feeling deeply.

I remember when I was flexible, gangly, even wiry. I’m working very hard to get back some of that, but this latest is a blow to my motivation. A few months ago, exercise invigorated me. Now it leaves me in pain. I want to stay young forever.

Well, aging isn’t all bad. We just visited another ward where my son’s fiance was confirmed. Probably won’t be long before more grandchildren come. It’s the way of things and I would be arrogant to think I should escape the march of time.
